Rose Bowl - Washington vs. Ohio State - I think the Huskies have the best schedule for getting to the Rose Bowl. They get Stanford at home, don’t have any true trap games and close at Washington State, who they still match up very well against. We’ll put them in Pasadena for now.

Alamo Bowl - Washington State vs. West Virginia - I think the Cougars drop two more, but that leaves them with just three loses and sends Mike Leach back to Texas to take on a Big 12 foe.

Holiday Bowl - Utah vs. Iowa - The Utes are the hottest team in the Pac-12 right now, but they’re in the midst of a brutal schedule and will probably drop another game or two. San Diego will be a nice landing spot.

Redbox Bowl - Oregon vs. Michigan State - The Ducks came crashing down in Pullman, but the good news is I think they only lose one the rest of the way and that should put them in a decent bowl.

Sun Bowl - Stanford vs. Virginia Tech - The Cardinal have been sliding, and while I think they recover to an extent, their November schedule isn’t easy and they should fall to the bottom of the Pac-12 North leader board.

Las Vegas Bowl - USC vs. San Diego State - Not sure if Clay Helton will be around for this trip to Vegas. The Trojans could end up here even if they win the South with how many loses they might stack up and if they’re dealing with firing a coach.

Cheez-It Bowl - Colorado vs. Iowa State - The Buffs are through the toughest part of their schedule and now need to win just one more to confirm a bowl game.
